JJ Artist to Watch: Meet Blue Hamilton!
When Matt Dallas surprised everyone in January by casually coming out as a gay man and announcing that he was engaged to his longtime boyfriend Blue Hamilton, the question on a lot of people’s mind was – who’s the lucky guy?!
Blue is a former music publishing executive turned singer/songwriter. The musician worked as an executive at Warner Music Group for about eight years, having worked with writer/producer Fernando Gariby, who has worked with big names like Lady Gaga and even Whitney Houston!

And if you’re a Katy Perry fan, you might want to send Blue a thank you card…
“I signed her through her first publishing deal before she was Katy Perry, before she was big and famous because I saw magic in her,” Blue shared exclusively with JustJared.com. “I thought she was a complete superstar, I loved her and I was a fan of her music.”
“I love music, and to write a song for Beyonce or to be in a room with Katy Perry,” Blue shared with us while discussing his passion for songwriting. “To actually write a song with Katy? That’s a dream.”
Right now, Blue is focusing on his songwriting as well as creating music videos for his songs off of “Radio Flyer”.
“It’s just a matter of what directors I meet creatively and what song they gravitate towards,” the musician says. “I want it to be a completely organic creative process so I don’t want to necessarily pick a song and say, ‘This is what it is.’ It’s more about who I meet and what we create together.”
